to solve some of the biggest sticking points. it looks like a new cloudy chapter in the book of currency wars between the united states and china has certainly been opened here at the apec summit in honolulu as barack obama is seeing really mounting pressure at home to create more jobs and take a start a tougher stance on china he has been seeing here in honolulu that it's time for china to start playing by the rules of us currently doesn't have a lot of leverage when it comes to dealing with china as china of course is the largest foreign creditor for the united states holding over one trillion dollars in u.s. debt russia is pretty excited to host the apec summit next year in the far eastern city of lot of us stocks recently russia is not only just geographically very well strategically placed for the asia pacific. gathering and this big konami group because of the where it is on the world map it's really convenient in terms of reaching the goals of the group in terms of trade investment so on and so forth but

6:10 am
intervention foreign governments straying well beyond the parameters they were laid out in un resolution something that russia has said that they will do everything within their power to stop happening in syria as they try and push for a peaceful solution to the ongoing conflict in the country. it is interesting how you draw the comparison here as we have heard from some human rights. so or calling about other people's rights protection in syria of course that was the whole un resolution one ninety seven three for libya they were supposed to protect civilians in the first place then as you know that the military intervention began but syria has called for an emergency meeting of the arab league to reverse the decision hasn't been any reaction to that yet well the arab league will hold that emergency meeting on wednesday now that meeting is expected to see the decision to suspend syria rubberstamp then and made it official now there's also been calls for further sanctions on syria from around the world the european union want to see the assets

6:13 am
particular from france and germany hardly the u.k. certainly the european parliament and the commission for what it's going to start but the crisis is safer our senior leaders who quit and italy replaced by people who were never elected to office he made their way around brussels here in italy with berlusconi now gone doesn't. playing for reforms now need to be implemented to meet tough itamar for the first time since the quizes began talks have now begun to turn to the possibility of exit from the year or the creation of the call euro countries like germany seem to be leading the way i think it's not in the best interest of the germans to keep on going with this article or you're right you have behaved badly we've got a partition that's not a union in united states of america you for steve behaved badly imagine taxes behaving badly and you think obama is going to we're going to kick you out of

united states of america no i'm not going to bribe the cooling sense of a bad year and greet with a good year a great has not gone unnoticed by struggling countries was this clear that these he waved a spent less now face a painful stereotype measures a sense of being treated like a naughty school child. then he added to the growing strain in the euro community it's only now started because well so see there was much more france and especially germany to the times there must be up to a say two to express a political leadership not just for their own countries but for europe as a whole your attentions have not called on this by the financial markets punish political leaders. in dealing with the crisis in struggling economies like italy even the. mistakes italy's being considered by many the test case for the entire a year you say it fails and it could take down the entire fifth the question now is
6:15 am
whether or not those measures can be whether we'll see them going the same way as previous measures put forward by european leaders who say failed to come up with a convincing. third party. leaders are right now crossing a quarter past the hour here in moscow a three man crew bound for the international space station has successfully lifted off from the baikonur cosmodrome in kazakhstan this is the first manned flight after a similar soyuz rocket carrying an unmanned supply vessel crashed about to work shortly after takeoff that was three months ago now. was on the launchpad for. launch time at the baikonur cosmodrome these three med have gone up to join their colleagues on the international space station but they're late and unhappy about why it is a risky business you can never eliminate risk altogether that that's the bargain that you make for the privilege of flying humans and space on accomplishing what
6:16 am
they do up there on the twenty fourth of august a supply rockets engines failed on its way up to the i.s.a.'s and it plummeted back to worth with a bang it was a manned but all launches were put on hold but worries about the safety of soyuz rockets now the only link to the space station crew since the last u.s. shuttle flight in july. this crew of their launch date set back their relatives were especially nervous after the program's crash what do you think about your husband's launch coming up so soon. it's too difficult it's better not to talk about it. the crew themselves though accept the dangers as part of the job. we're upset about the accident of course but every big project has some room for failure unfortunately this is not completely avoidable but we shouldn't climatized the situation. and so it was that rocket was lifted into place on its launch pad we
6:17 am
can see the rockets taking off with what's appropriate. with deep sighs of relief all watched as the rocket blasted successfully into orbit leading the crew to experience what all the rest of us are retrievable. you can actually get a good here of the earth during the flight and the spacecraft but surely will have time to enjoy it better while the international space station for that view and from ams future in space they say the risk is worth it. tom watson r.t. . now the u.k. plans to get tough on gang culture by opening schools with stringent army like discipline the measure was proposed in response to the riots that shook the u.k. in the summer and while the plans authors believe discipline is key critics fear it could actually alienate problem youths further out is i when it explodes. as the

every teacher will be a former soldier uniform inspections and military style roll calls with a polish of a strict routine when you can maintain discipline in the theater war which is the most high pressured situation you can maintain discipline in a classroom and all them but with corporal punishment now i stick close many fear it will push an already alienated youth further away i think they would start building their own gang as they've been through all the police now i've seen replays behave towards our kids it's two games into it you can see the police are a gang it would be the army kids i think it would become more unruly it is charity takes in problem peoples the state system chucks out and turns their lives around according to teachers here it's about finding the right kind of stimulation rather than just cracking the whip they become unruly because they're bored putting discipline in isn't the answer just on the tone discipline yes but at
